A beautiful but rather rampant creeper that needs controlling and lots of space, but perfect to cover fences and provide dense screening. Bright green leaves are slightly succulent, and stems are tough and strong. This creeper grows rapidly and large, round acid yellow flower heads are on show for months. Seedlings germinate easily around the garden. Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga.
